I received the following information as a blogger via Walt Disney Publications. While I’m attending an expense paid trip by Disney to the press events for Avengers: Age of Ultron and Monkey Kingdom, all opinions are 100% my own.
So hopefully you’ve been following along on my #MonkeyKingdom adventure and saw that I was lucky enough to recently screen the film MONKEY KINGDOM. The film, which opens TODAY, tells the adventures of the clever Maya, a toque macaque monkey who lives with her troop aka the monkey kingdom, among the jungle ruins in Sri Lanka.
Not long after we are introduced to Maya, her life is changed when she gives birth to her baby boy Kip. As Maya is at the bottom of her crazy complicated monkey family, she is determined to find a way for her son to excel in their monkey world. Maya’s world is forever changed when she welcomes her son, Kip, into her complicated extended family. In her adventures, Maya encounters deadly predators such leopards and monitor lizards, as well as one point dealing with loosing her home, Castle Rock, to a rival monkey family. Through it all though, you see Maya keep her chin up, and use her street smarts to survive.
